Writing Across the Curriculum

Travel Grant Application

To support the professional development of Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Certificate recipients, the WAC Program is offering a Travel Grant. This grant can be used for travel to a WAC- or writing-related scholarly conference. Examples of such conferences include the International WAC conference, the Conference on College Composition and Communication, or conferences about writing in your discipline. Two grants of up to $800 are available this academic year.



Only WAC Certificate recipients are eligible to apply. Past WAC travel-grant recipients can re-apply after five years and after completing the post-grant requirement (see below).


Application Requirements

A 250-300-word proposal that

  1. Describes the course(s) to which the applicant hopes to apply WAC theories and pedagogies. Is this a course you know you’ll be teaching in the next 2-3 semesters, or is this a class you hope to teach soon?
  2. Describes the conference to which the applicant plans to travel.* Please hyperlink the conference’s homepage in your proposal.
  3. Describes the applicant’s conference plans as they relate to WAC (e.g., presenting a paper, attending certain types of panels or workshops, etc.)

If a paper is being presented, please include a 50-100-word abstract.  If evidence of acceptance to the conference is available, please attach that, as well.

Please refer to the WAC Travel Grant Rubric before writing your proposal.


Post Travel Grant Requirement

Travel Grant recipients will share either the writing-related ideas they presented at the attended conference, or the most useful, writing-related information they learned at that conference at a 1-hour WAC Lunch and Learn at Pollak Library in the academic year following their travel.
